about a girl

the obligatory "about me" section....

I've never been really good about talking about myself (most evident in my resume, but trust me, you don't want to read that- no one does, hence my semi-unemployment). For me, it's easier to identify myself with quotes and lyrics that someone else said first. So, below are a few that really sum me up, said first by others much more loquacious than I.

"She generally gave herself very good advice, (though she very seldom followed it)" 
- Alice in Wonderland 


"You're too sweet for rock and roll."
"Sweet? Where do you get off? Where do you get sweet? I am dark and mysterious, and pissed off! And I could be very dangerous to all of you! You should know that about me... I am the enemy!"-- Almost Famous

"They don't even know what it is to be a fan. Y'know? To truly love some silly little piece of music, or some band, so much that it hurts." --Almost Famous

So, about this girl... I'm Kelli. I'm a recent University of Kentucky grad with a double major in Agricultural Communications and Journalism. I'm currently at UK finishing up a Master's degree in Community and Leadership Development. I am ridiculously in love with music, and want more than anything to have a career as a music journalist or a merch girl, just so I can support myself and my love of music at the same time while combating my complete and total lack of musical talent. 

Burning Bright is mainly about music, with reviews of songs, albums or live shows I go out to. Sometimes I do stray from that and post about food or just my life in general as I struggle to figure out the next phase and choose between the safe, smart path and the scary, unusual road that is so strongly pulling my heart in the direction of the unknown. 
one of my favorite quotes.
Time to make this life a little more daring and a lot more adventurous. Won't you join me?
